Italy food diary- Berries! Day travel to Nemi (Castelli Romani)

In Italy, eat like the locals!

Day travel to Nemi (Castelli Romani)

During our visit in Rome we did a day travel to a small charming Italian town, just about 30 minutes from Rome- called Nemi, this town specialises in growing wild berries! Or as it called in Italian- Fragoline di Bosco.

Nemi is the smallest town of Castelli Romani, famous for its strawberries cultivation, located on the hills surrounding the volcanic lake in the heart of Castelli Romani.

Nemi takes its name from Nemus Diana (Diana Nemorensis, “Diana of Nemi” also known as “Diana of the Wood”) was an Italic form of the goddess who became Hellenised during the fourth century BC and conflated with Artemis.

Her sanctuary was to be found on the northern shore of Lake Nemi beneath the cliffs of the modern city Nemi (Latin nemus Aricinum).

Strawberry Festival

The ‘Fragoline di Bosco’ strawberry festival is one of Lazio’s most popular food festivals during May and June every year.

On the first weekend of June, there is a parade through the town with traditional costume

Nemi is a perfect place to enjoy the view of the lake while tasting the local berries

Health Benefits of Berries-

Berries as an essential fruit group in a heart-healthy diet.

Berries are a good source of polyphenols (especially anthocyanins), micronutrients, and fibre.

In epidemiological and clinical studies, these constituents have been associated with improved cardiovascular risk profiles.

Cholesterol & Diabetes 

Human intervention studies using chokeberries, cranberries, blueberries, and strawberries (either fresh, or as juice, or freeze-dried), or purified anthocyanin extracts have demonstrated significant improvements in LDL oxidation, lipid peroxidation, total plasma antioxidant capacity, dyslipidemia, and glucose metabolism.
